We ALMOST left because there wasn’t seating BUT Hank reeled us in with a brisket sample! The food is amazing and the “Big Hank” actually completely satisfied my husband’s appetite. Highly recommend a stop here. You will enjoy every bite!

Hanks has some great BBQ. Good traditional pulled pork and back ribs, absolutely. But, also some unusual choices such as smoked corned beef, which is really good! Hanks is a worthy entry in the best BBQ in Indianapolis sweepstakes!

Best brisket I've ever had. Ribs were good but not on the level of the brisket. Parking is tight and the neighborhood iffy, but worth the trip. Carry out only.

Brisket was as good as I have had and the sauce is amazing! Parking lot was full and difficult to get out of. Sides of baked beans and mac and cheese were average.

Out of the way, but worth the drive. The smoked brisket is juicy, flavorful, and the best I have ever had. The owner is a hoot, and if I could spend the day there eating BBQ and chatting with the owner, I would. Go, you'll...More
